Having entered ourselves for the Bristol Company of the Year Award, which
included submitting a detailed 10 page business report and presenting
a power-point presentation to judges and other companies. We were also
judged on our stall and were asked questions by the judges about our
company and problems that we had encountered,
Although we were mentioned as being candidates for the
prizes for best presentation, best stall, and best report,
we didn't win any of them. However, because we had been
considered for each of the other prizes, we won runner-up
